As a mother myself, I enjoy working with individuals transitioning to parenthood, and have received training in Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders from Postpartum Support International. Parenthood is arguably the most life-altering and all-consuming role you will ever have. Relationships, career paths, and priorities shift to make room for your growing family. Pregnancy or preparing for baby’s arrival, and the postpartum period up through your child’s first birthday can be particularly stressful (yet exciting!).
It is often helpful to work through some of the issues that arise during this time, especially if you are struggling with postpartum anxiety or mood disorder. Through our work together, I will help you prepare for parenthood before your child arrives, assist you in the postpartum period, and engage you in the ongoing work it often takes to stay emotionally and physically healthy as you return to the office or adjust to staying at home full-time.
I received a Master of Social Work degree from Washington University in St. Louis and an undergraduate degree from Connecticut College. Over the last decade, I have held both leadership and clinical positions at community behavioral health and hospital settings in the District of Columbia. I currently find great joy in teaching a clinical practice seminar for the Master of Social Work program at the Catholic University of America.
On a personal level, I am a resident of Takoma Park, Maryland, and spend much of my time parenting a very active toddler. I enjoy spending time outdoors, reading fiction and memoirs, and exploring new food and restaurants.
I am available for appointments during the day and in the evening. Please contact me at 202-688-1449 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about the services I provide or to set up an initial consultation.
